NV Nicolas Maillart Champagne Premier Cru Platine

Cellar Tracker Community 90.1 points (as of 5/7/19)

John Gilman 91+ points (rated Jul/ Aug 2015) - 

The new release of Platine Brut from the Maillart family is from the base year of 2011, with twenty-eight percent of the cuvée comprised of reserve wines. The blend has a touch more pinot noir this year than last year’s rendition, coming in at eighty-five percent pinot noir and fifteen percent chardonnay and was finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. The bouquet is excellent, jumping from the glass in a deep and classy mélange of apple, white peach, fresh-baked bread, a fine base of soil and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and youthfully snappy, with a fine core, elegant mousse, excellent soil signature and a long, perfectly balanced finish. This is probably not quite as deep as last year’s version, which was base year 2010, but equally complex and promising. Fine juice that is quite tasty today, but will be even better with a year or two more bottle age. (Drink between 2015-2030)
